Coming to America

My trip to the States is now officially booked, and the chosen city is Chicago.

As this is going to be my first visit to America, I needed help; after all, when you live in a quiet little village where you only have to worry about stray bulls and tractors, America does seem daunting. Thankfully, help has come in the form of Classy, Cherry and Dr Ken, who have promised to take good care of me, by showing me the sights and making sure my blood alcohol level does not drop too low. And special thanks to Cherry, who has been kind enough to put me up for the week!!

The highlight of the trip is going to be St Patrick's Day, and from all I've read so far, looks like it's going to be a big one. I really thought people were joking when they said the river would run green. Then I saw pictures. This is something I must see.

So all I have to do now is wait for March to roll round, practice speaking American, and prepare myself for what looks to be an exciting week!

  • Good luck on the American-speaking practice. I hear from your kind that it's actually more difficult than one might think.

  • yeaaah! fun for Chicago. And wow - Coming to America and American Pie. I love your tastes. My favorite C to A moment; "today, I would like to wipe my own ass." ... "ha ha - very fun sir."

  • They do dye the river green. Now if only they could dye it blue every other day of the year . . .

    Okay, I stole that quote from something. In any event, I'm up for that task of keeping your blood alcohol at a respectable level. I'm just the man for the job.

    I'm honored that your first trip to the states will be to Chicago.

  • Can I get a what what?!! (waving my hands in the air like I just don't care). This is going to be the trip of the millenium. You are guaranteed to leave loving the capital of the Midwest. Start preparing your liver now.

  • Just four months to train myself for the big event, but I'm sure I'm in the hands of trained professionals.

    I promise to try and sneak in some Vegimite, always wanted to be a Vegimite mule.
